My second topic of my catch up is the new hashtag game that got me up from the depths of writers block and out of depression alley, which is right by prostitution lane. I don’t know why. I didn’t design the city. For reasons I’ll continue to cover in future posts, I struggled with writing after January.

The more you do, the more you improve and the faster you improve. Simple!

I started a regular tweet feature called #AdventuresInEditing, where I tweet real and made up excuses why I didn’t get any work done today. I hope it amuses people and gets some aspiring not to be like me in that regard. I’m so great I can turn a bout of laziness into a motivational event.

The Damsel has its first concept sketch, possible book cover and a ton more motivation for me to finish it quickly! Below is the drawing in question.
I have learned to draw by observation and most of those come from watching anime. My style is a bit strange lolol since i mixed manga and anime like K-on as reference previously xD
This week’s Sharing Saturday falls on Christmas Eve, so I’ve gathered some of the most appealing Christmas art that I’ve stumbled across this year.
